I did some serious research on Facebook recently. And this is what I found.
The frequency chart of Comments by Friends looks ‘’like’’ this- (for simplifying the complex figures, I have reduced it to a distribution of 100 typical comments).
How cute- 20
You look gorgeous!- 70
Perfect couple- 5
Happy anniversary, Happy birthday, Congratulations- 5
All the rest- 0
Does this point to a serious problem our next-gen is going to have with vocabulary? Are we going to be back in the cave-man days when da, duh, aah were the three major words we knew? Ah, well, I don’t know. That would need more research, wouldn’t it?
